I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and credit my strong attachment to the natural world to growing up in the Northwest. My parents were big into the outdoors and I had exposure to camping, hiking, and spending time in wilderness from an early age. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to have had multiple opportunities to travel around the world and experience a variety of wild places as well as a diverse range of cultures.
I find myself frequently in awe of the world around me, from natural wonders to marvels of human creativity. It never ceases to amaze me how things which are often taken for granted or over looked can be just as beautiful and fascinating as the grand, extravagant, and praised. The photographs I take reflect my vision of the magic I see and feel in the world as well as a way for me to re-connect with that magic when it gets lost in the bustle of every day life. Through the lens I can re-focus my own vision and see with more clarity how amazing the world can be.
